Paddy Power is one of the largest names in the online betting world and their casino is a highly rated, quality place to enjoy a huge range of betting. It stands out from the crowd by using a unique selection of titles from several different developers and there is an exciting option to compete against real people, while all players can claim a number of bonuses and get extra cash to enjoy the games even more.
Based in Ireland, Paddy Power are best known as a sports betting company, but in recent years their online business has gone from strength to strength. They have taken an innovative approach that has made them suitably different from their competitors and this has helped them to become one of the biggest names in both the UK and Ireland. The casino homepage is very simple, with just a banner detailing the current welcome offer, plus some quick links to the most popular pages and tabs that take visitors to other parts of the overall site.
Their great strength is that unlike most UK casino sites, they are not tied down to using games from just one supplier, and while the downloadable version uses Playtech software, featuring mostly IGT and Net Ent titles, the live casino is powered by Evolution Gaming. All of which can be accessed using just one account, as can the player, bingo, poker, mobile and sports betting parts of the site.
The main casino has several versions of Roulette, Blackjack and Video Poker, plus Baccarat, Craps, Caribbean Stud Poker, and games unique to Playtech like Wild Viking and Stravaganza. The slots are an outstanding feature, with film-based varieties being a particular speciality; these include:
Marvel superhero movies have been made into a popular range of slots; some examples are Iron Man, Wolverine, Thor, Captain America, Fantastic Four, and more, each with a four level progressive jackpot.
Other progressive jackpot prize slots include Gold Rally and Monty Python's Spamalot, both of which can reach well over £1 million, plus Mr. Cashback, Beach Life, and Everybody's Jackpot. By clicking through to the Games section, visitors can enjoy hit slots like Cleopatra, Monopoly, Gonzos' Quest and Deal or No Deal with around 240 titles available in total, while at the live casino, webcams link up to real croupiers at Roulette, Blackjack, Casino Holdem, and Baccarat tables. A highlight is the 'Player' facility, where anyone can pit their skills against real people for real money in head to head form or in tournaments. Software includes: Roulette, Blackjack, Gin Rummy, Backgammon, Brag, Poker, Dice and others.
Paddy Power Vegas is their casino app, where a selection of the most popular games can be enjoyed on iPhones and iPads, although there is already a perfectly good mobile version of the site that features around 30 varieties for all smartphones and tablets. Customers can use their existing accounts and login details to play on mobile devices and even deposit funds, although withdrawals need to be via the desktop site.
The downloadable casino features the vast majority of the bonus offers, although there are often some small promotions to be found at the Games, Live and Vegas divisions.
Offers are subject to change now and then, with Paddy Power generally providing a deposit match bonus for new players, plus a small no-deposit amount. Like any online casino bonus, to prevent abuse there are certain terms and conditions attached to it and here, the funds can only be cashed out once the combined bonus and deposit amounts have been played through a set number of times.
For every £10 staked at the casino, players earn Club Points, which can be exchanged for real cash once a certain number have been accumulated. There is also a six-level rewards scheme, where the points conversion rates improve the higher up the levels a customer rises, with each level featuring more and more rewards. At the top, VIP stage, players are eligible for invites to exclusive events, the services of a Hospitality Manager, extra bonuses, promotions and competitions. There is little in the way of other promotions open to all players with most offers linked directly to the rewards scheme.
Customers can pay money into their Paddy Power account using credit and debit cards, plus a couple of e-wallets, but prepaid vouchers cannot be used. Transactions are all carried out using secure encryption systems and processed quickly. Withdrawn funds will be credited back to the same method used to make the last deposit with and tend to clear in a quick 2-3 working days.
Paddy Power offer a diverse selection of casino opportunities, spread across several parts of the site, but all playable using one account. Software restrictions mean that it's not possible to put all games in one place, hence the fact that players need to click on different sections to play all the titles.
The main casino uses arguably the best quality software from Playtech, while the games section has a massive selection of entertaining slots, cards and tables from several sources, and the live casino is as close as it's possible to get to a real casino without leaving home. The players' area is a great feature that should be tried by everyone and with thousands online at any time, there is no shortage of competitors to play against. The mobile site has a good number of games on it, although having the 'Vegas' app for iPhones only seems a little redundant.
Bonuses vary, with the new player offers tending to be quite good, but other promotions limited to the Loyalty Points scheme and it's associated rewards, although these can be quite good, especially at the higher levels of the club.
